Little beeniebud loves arts and crafts and we have really enjoyed going to indikidual creative workshops. indikidual a new kids clothing range* which lets children’s personalities shine.  indikidual creative workshops are part of the New Windows on Willesden Green Project. The project is run by The Architecture Foundation and Meanwhile Space, takes on vacant spaces and converts them into creative places for people looking to try out their big idea! One thing all projects must have in common is that something of what they do will be given back to the community in some way. With indikidual’s workshops don’t expect your average felt tip pens, colouring-in books and glitter glue. They want to take kids crafting to another level, indikidual style! Products that are made in the craft sessions will in turn go back into the local community in the form of window displays and artwork in public buildings. Also some of the artwork will be printed on some eco tote bags to be used at the local green grocers! Fab! 

Here are the details below:

indikidual are holding a series of creative workshops every Friday 3pm to 5pm and Saturday 10am to 12 noon at Willesden Green, at Unit 7 Queens Parade, Walm Lane. Workshops cost £5 per session or book 5 sessions for £20. For more details and bookings call or email Syreeta on 078821 78873 / info@indikidual.com

ellas kitchen review munchy biccies

Spring has arrived and we are looking forward to the long Summer days ahead! A few weeks ago we was sent a cool and yummy new range from Ella’s Kitchen, Munchy Biccies. 100% scrummy little munchy biccie packs with the goodness of organic fruit + oats. Little beeniebud loved the chesse and apple biccies, a great treat that wouldn’t make her too full to have her lunch or dinner. Perfect as a yummy treat or snack for big little people!

With this yummy product was a packet of sunflower seeds ready to sow. So Mr beeniebud suggested that we should start  little beeniebuds first planting project. We went out and got some little people gardening tools that are fun, bright and cheap! Little beeniebud loves the garden and enjoyed planting with mummy and getting her hands dirty.

We love a sing-song here and nursery  rhymes are part of our daily routine. So we was very excited to receive the new Tasty Tunes by Ella’s Kitchen. Rachel Stevens is the voice behind Tasty Tunes. The songs are familiar to the classic nursery rhymes so it was easy to sing along. Little beeniebud loves her fruit and vegetables so it was easy for her to pick out her favourite ones. If you would like to download your own Tasty Tunes click here for more information. 

Take a peek at our behind the scenes footage of the making of Tasty Tunes below:
